The Round Table was founded in 1927 in Norwich (UK) by Louis Marchesi. The Round Table Luxembourg was established on 8th August, 1963.
The aim of the organisation is to collect funds to support its charitable work. It is politically and religiously neutral, with tolerance and friendship as watch words.
The Round Table Luxembourg's slogan, "We Care for Kids" reflects its commitment to children from underprivileged backgrounds, locally, regionally and far beyond the borders of the Grand Duchy.
The 6 local Tables bring together 180 Tablers. These Tablers are young men under the age of 40 who are full of heart and without prejudice. They are responsible and active within a variety of professional fields.
The 6 regional Tables get together regularly to collect funds.
The most widely-known event is undoubtedly the famous Duck Race. 4,000 spectators gathered in the Pétrusse valley to watch 12,000 plastic ducks. This event enabled the Round Table to donate €66,000 to two Luxembourg-based charities in 2012.
